And turner couldn’t cope up with this situation. Third and most important factor which has made Turner’s situation even worse is his relationship with higher management and peer group, particularly with Mr. Cardullo.

This happens more often than not, because the local ITT Tech campus is understaffed and is attempting to continue to offer classes as advertised . This is not to say that these instructors are all uneducated in other fields, but are not qualified to teach a specific course requested of them as a “fill in”. Some instructors do not realize the potential damage of their actions, but instead see only the monetary compensation for their time. This leaves students frustrated with the lack of useful information learned and bitter for having their time and money wasted because of the poor management of ITT Tech .
